Join artist Samantha Williams-Chapelsky for an in-depth lecture and demonstration of Printmaking techniques using GOLDEN Acrylics. Using repeated images as a theme, we will show you many stress free printmaking techniques, no fancy press required. We provide an overview of the many surfaces available for printing, as well as the array of GOLDEN Acrylic Paints that are suitable for making multiple prints. OPEN, the new acrylic that stays wet for extended periods of time is the perfect match. We also use QoR Watercolors for a unique monoprinting technique. This lecture doesn’t stop at the print. We also cover additive and subtractive processes, using High Flow and Fluorescent colors for printing and enhancing finished prints, and using GOLDEN Grounds and Gels for watercolor washes, relief prints, and collagraphs. Attendees leave with new creative possibilities and ideas for small prints, greeting cards, journaling, fabric applications, as well as techniques for larger professional applications. Attendees will receive a selection of the products discussed to take home and explore the breadth and depth of GOLDEN’s professional product line.
